Valarie Wilson, the former City Schools of Decatur Board of Education chairperson and state school superintendent candidate, is in line to become the next Executive Director of the Georgia School Boards Association.

GSBA is a lobbying organization for school boards in the state of Georgia. Wilson joined the GSBA in 2009 and served as its president in 2012-2013. Wilson was the Democratic nominee for state school superintendent, losing to Republican Richard Woods in the November elections.

Justin Pauly, spokesperson for GSBA, said “Valarie has been named as the candidate for Executive Director to be brought to the full GSBA Board of Directors. There will be an official vote on May 8.”

Wilson would be replacing Executive Director Sis Henry, who is retiring in June.

Decaturish has left a message with Wilson seeking comment. This story will be updated when she responds.
